That’s About as Simple as It Gets

Yesterday, my friend Miggie said to me, “You seem to always write about the general market anymore.” I thought for a moment about the implied question: “Why?” In that moment, I came up with several reasons for why I focus on general market commentary, which I told her, but in my mini litany of reasons, I heard my words about you, the reader. Writers write to an audience, but writers are not...

What I Look For In A Good Investment

What I Look For In A Good Investment

If you’ve been investing very long, you no doubt understand the importance of having a solid system in place. By “system” I’m not referring to a secret black box or to technical rules, though both can be valid approaches in the right hands.  I am speaking far more broadly.  Whether you are a value investor, a technician or a data-crunching quant, consistently making good returns in the...

Follow The 3 Key Trading Rules Of Jesse Livermore

Edwin Lefevre wrote his story in the book Reminiscence of a Stock Operator, one of my favorite reads.  He was truly a man before his time, making his fortune during the days prior to the Great Depression at bucket shops and fledgling brokerages.  His tape-reading skills were legendary and are...

The Market Is Stretched, At the Moment

Earnings reporting is almost complete, the recent positive economic data has been digested, China is forgotten for now, Europe’s lagging economy is well known, and Ukraine is, well, still a problem on the geopolitical front.

What Does S&P 500 At 2000 Really Mean And How Can You Trade It?

Traditionally September is a month that sees a decline in the equity index markets. When markets put in new record highs, we often see a retracement from those levels. On the flipside, investors and market players have heard from the Fed and have a better picture of the Fed’s future plans. The shrinking of the stimulus program along with the hint of changing interest rates next year has not...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
